The hour fast approaches: this Saturday and Sunday at Governors Island is the first annual New York City Poetry Festival, presented by the Poetry Society of New York.

Metro Rhythm will be among the many great organizations at the festival. At 1pm on Saturday 7/30, Metro Rhythm will present readings by Kirkwood Adams, Danniel Schoonebeek, and Timothy Donnelly. And Julia Guez will be there as our personal master of ceremonies– come see her before she leaves New York!

Just looking at the numbers on Facebook, this event promises to be huge, and is most certainly not to be missed.

Readings and events will run from noon to 5pm on both the 30th and 31st. Come early, stay late! There’s no better way to finish up July than with some inspiration from some of the best poets in NYC.

Please RSVP on Facebook, and we’ll see you there.

Your Poetry POPSICKLE Awaits You

It’s time to get ready for POPSICKLE!

POPSICKLE is a literary festival that brings together Brooklyn’s many reading series and small presses for one collectively-curated reading and book fair. And it’s now only weeks away.

When you come down to the Gowanus Ballroom on Saturday, July 23, you’ll get to see a host of great Brooklyn literary institutions– not to mention our own dazzling trio of readers: Dorothea Lasky, Julia Guez, and Ben Pease.

Readings will run from 1 to 8 pm, with music to follow. There will be food, drinks, and a raffle– in short, all kinds of summer fun! Add to that the fact that veteran Rhythmer Kirkwood Adams will be serving as the Metro Rhythm master of ceremonies, and you’ve got a icy-cool Saturday on your hands.

So, before it melts: July 23, 1-8, the Gowanus Ballroom (at 55 9th Street in Brooklyn). You can learn more here, RSVP here, and we’ll see you there.

Metro Rhythm at POPSICKLE Fest, 07.23.11

Popsickle

Guess we made a splash this year! In July, Metro Rhythm is curating three readers as part of Brooklyn’s POPSICKLE Festival. Our readers will include the “wonderful and talented” Dorothea Lasky, the “beautifully brilliant” (or was it “brilliantly beautiful”?) Julia Guez, plus one more reader still to be announced. It was very difficult to pick these folks out of all the fabulous writers who’ve read for us in the past, but we’re sure they’ll represent the series well.

The Festival will be held on Saturday, July 23rd from 4-7 PM at the Gowanus Ballroom in Brooklyn. Check back soon for updates on the full list of readers and events.

The entire POPSICKLE schedule will be available on their website, here.
